“Comfort food for the cow-lover.” - by LeahEats
Original recipe yields 3 servings
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
- Combine cornmeal, flour, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a resealable plastic bag; shake to mix. Gently shake tofu slices with cornmeal mixture to coat, then shake off excess, and place into prepared baking dish.
- Bake tofu in preheated oven for 10 minutes, then turn the pieces over and continue to cook for an additional 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add minced onion and cook until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in soy sauce and barbeque sauce. Bring to a simmer, then turn heat to low and keep warm until the tofu is ready.
- When tofu has finished baking, pour the hot barbeque sauce overtop, then return to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

"I have made this recipe twice now. Both times, I sliced the tofu then pressed it for 1/2 hour before continuing with the recipe. I find this makes for a firmer baked tofu. The first time I coated the ..." See moretofu and baked it according to the directions. The second time, I coated the tofu then fried it in just a little oil on both sides just till golden, then I baked it. I found this made a pleasing crunchy coating. I used my bottled barbeque sauce as is rather than adding the additional ingredients. I like the coating and the addition of the bbq was good. I serve this with homemade coleslaw and corn on the cob for a summer bbq treat. I will make this again."
"I changed this A LOT. I didn't have any cornmeal, so I used Italian-seasoned bread crumbs. I left out the chili powder but used all the other spices. As some other commenters suggested. I fried it up ..." See morein a pan with just some spray oil, then baked it. It then occurred to me that with the Italian seasonings and bread crumbs, maybe pasta sauce would be a more appropriate topping than barbeque. So that's what I did, and it was FAB. My husband said it was just like eating lasagne. I felt like I was eating cubes of ricotta, and my subconscious starting telling me I would get fat! But no, it's just tofu. Delish!"
